Question... Somebody told me na lahat ng Nikon users tawag sa kanila Dark Side and if you're a Canon user they tag you the Jedi, is this real?

nakasanayan lang yun kasi white lens ang mga telephoto ng Canon (Jedi) while black naman sa Nikon (Sith) although meron din naman white (actually gray) telephoto lens ang Nikon.

wow, thanks for all the infos, I learned a lot in this thread!


did you know that this is the most expensive photograph of Einstein.?



The iconic photograph of the scientist sticking his tongue out was sold by a New Hampshire auction company  for $74,330, making it the most expensive Einstein photograph to be ever sold at an auction! The iconic photograph was taken by Arthur Sasse in 1951 while the scientist was celebrating his birthday. Arthur was convincing Einstein to pose for a photo but the scientist stuck his tongue out instead.


1. . .2. . .3. Albert! wacky mode! :D

  Did you know that old timer photographers could:

  - judge the distance of subject from their camera accurately without using AF or any other measuring device?

  - that in the old days, for really accurate focusing especially on shallow DOF shots with wide open apertures and long FL, they use long tape measures to accurately measure distance of subject to camera?

  - in the days of manual flash only, no TTL metering, thyristor flash cut-off, they could set the aperture, shutter speed and flash output correctly and consistently?

Did you that you can control the shutter of your DSLR if you have Nokia N900 by installing the free Pykake software from Maemo.org. I test in my D7K successfully. You can also use it as timer for when using Bulb and can use it for intervalometer. Ang galing!

By the way, N900 is a Linux based OS phone.

ok most of you probably know this pero for some who may have missed it:

did you know that you can have a 2-sec timer on your canon 350D/400D? simply turn on the mirror lock up function and set the drive mode to "self-timer". Upon pressing the shutter the mirror locks up-then waits another 2secs (instead of the usual 10secs) before the actually taking the shot. A nice feature when working on a tripod using long exposures. You get the benefit of minimizing camera shake due to pressing the shutter and vibration from the mirror slap. a good alternative if you don't have an ir remote or cable release.

not sure though if this is the same for other models

This is feature is also available in some Nikon cameras like the D90 for example.

Did you know that Nikon produced the Nikkor 6mm F2.8 -- the lens with the widest viewing angle of 220º.

It can technically see behind itself ;)
